Toy Story was released by Disney/Avalanche Games, but here is a demo THQ/Heavy Iron Studios produced: Long story short, we (THQ) were bidding for Toy Story 3 which was excluded from our deal with Pixar. Disney/Pixar pitted us vs. Avalanche to demonstrate what we'd do with the brand. We flew to Pixar in Emeryville and were sequestered in a conference room while Disney/Avalanche went first. The main conference room windows where 'blacked out' so we couldn't see (nor could they see our presentation). We presented to senior execs including John Lasseter and Ed Catmull. We were told Avalanche showed storyboards for what they'd produce if given the license. Our presentation was a live game demo that had multiple parts and featured reskinned Xbox 360 consoles in a nice box (http://www.techeblog.com/index.php/tech-gadget/ebay-watch-rare-toy-story-3-themed-xbox-360-console). The night before we rehearsed our presentation (I would play the game) for hours, and it was decided the last part of the demo (the flying/shooting) wouldn't be demoed. In the end, I was put on the spot to demo/play it (and thankfully it went well - Lasseter was very encouraging 'rooting' for me at times). Then THQ offered an obscene amount of money just for the rights to do it. In the end, Disney kept it internally.
